-- you say goodbye and i say hello. thanks so much for joining us. i'm tom foreman. "anderson cooper 360" starts right now. >>> tom, thanks very much. good evening, everyone. we have breaking news about congressman jesse jackson jr. who hasn't been seen in weeks. there is word tonight after more than a month of utter silence about congressman jesse jackson jr.'s medical condition, there's been a lot of rumors as well as reporting that's just flat-out wrong about what's been going on with the congressman. tonight, his doctor says he's being treated for what's described as a mood disorder. our kate baldwin is bourque working her sources. we're going to try to get to the bottom of this. it's very unusual for a sitting member of congress to disappear for weeks without any explan in addition. but before we get to that, we have a 360 exclusive. now, for months, as you know, we've been covering the investigation into the fast and furious gun running operation. tonight, the mother and cousin of slain border patrol agent brian terry, the man you see right there, who was killed in connection with

in contempt. >> congressman issa went on to call monday's announcement another example, quote, of using politics over good policy. we asked jeffrey toobin about the timing of this. he said an eight-month gap between indictment and press conference is unusual, but jeff said there may be good reasons to keep indictments sealed that long, such as the one laid out by the u.s. attorney handling the case. >> when we are conducting covert operations, it benefits us to have the names of the defendants we are looking for sealed and not available to the if you believe. >> so were there good law enforcement reasons to keep these indictments feeled for eight months? possibly. was there also a political or public relations component to monday's announcement? also very possible. we have no clear answer to chairman issa's allegation tonight. nor for this allegation levelled by issa and republican senator charles grassley. they say the atf has now put these two fast and furious whistleblowers, special agent shawn dodson and pete fraselli under a boss who threatened to take them down. in a letter, issa
sources. she'll join us shortly. we're going to try to get to the bottom of this. it's very unusual for a sitting member of congress to disappear for weeks without any explanation. but before we get to that, we have a 360 exclusive. now, for months, as you know, we've been covering the investigation into the fast and furious gun-running operation. tonight, the mother and cousin of slain border patrol agent brian terry, the man you see right there, who was killed in connection with the gun running operation, they are speaking out on this program. speaking out for the first time since the indictments were unsealed on monday, charging five people in the shootout that resulted in the death of agent terry. the shootout, which happened in december of 2010. now, two guns were found at the scene of terry's murder. guns that months earlier, the u.s. government allegedly knew and allowed to be bought by known criminals. four of the five men charged in agent terry's murder are still at large, presumably in mexico. we have pictures of three of them. federal authorities are offering up to $1 mil
's their response? >> they're working with us. [laughter] >> so it's a legitimate reason -- >> the current structure, mr. chairman, that the way the data's pulled in and then analyzed, it's, for example, 2012 we're looking at 2010 data. and so how does that become actionable and meaningful when you get your report, it's really just tied to an update in finances and not to clinical care. and we want it tied to clinical care so we can make actionable statements about patients. so that's the problem using claims data that then has to be aggregated when that year's closed out and analyzed. and by the time it's analyzed and presented, another year's passed. that's why we're looking at other data systems that get to the target you're asking us to get to, and if we had these other, access to these other data systems, they're realtime. they allow us to say that happened last month. that can't happen this month. we need to put an action plan in place to correct that. that's part of the big disconnect, and it's not for lack of trying. it's just the wrong data set to drive the goal that we're trying to reach.
it is worth the effort. when you think congress should go from here? you can also catch up with us on all of your favorite social media sites on twitter, fiscal -- facebook andy can you tell us at journal.cspan.org. some reaction already coming in on facebook on the health care repeal. one person writes it is a typical gop tactic. another person wrote, they did the right thing. he doesn't call. we want to hear your thoughts on the subject. we will be talking about it for the first 35 minutes. first, we want to talk about mitt romney who addressed the national association for the advancement of colored people. we will discuss governor romney's speech. colorado was governor romney received by the crowds ha? -- how was governor romney received by the crowd? . caller: - - guest: he made some statements he knew would not be received well in the room. he said he would be appealed in federal health-care law. -- repeal the federal health- care law. the booing was only a few seconds in a 22 minute speech. host: how has the romney campaign is on the? guest: i spoke with one of his senior advisers.
report about the same time we do. >> cbs new legal analyst jack ford is with us now. jack, this is not -- these are not legal findings not a criminal investigation but it still stands to have a major impact. what do you see it being? >> it is important. you have to realize, as you said, it's not a legal document. it has no force of law behind it. it's not an indictment. some states allow grand juries to offer up what are often called presentations, which can be criticisms of government entities or individuals. it's none of that. it's essentially a private individual doing an exhaustive investigation, as we heard from armen and saying here's what went wrong and here are things. what it is really is a roadmap. it's going to allow penn state and anyone else interested including the victims and their lawyers to find out who did what and who knew what when and who didn't do certain things. but it's going to give penn state a roadmap to say here's what you need to do to make sure it doesn't happen again. >> who do they go after? the university and joe patern

of which have significantly advanced u.s. national security interests while also strengthening our national intelligence and military intelligence capabilities during a very challenging period in our nation's history. throughout his time in uniform, lieutenant general burgess has demonstrated an unyielding dedication to duty and innate ability to inspire enthusiasm and commitment to serve those he leads. lieutenant general burgess' selfless service to country and his unparalleled personal drive have been instrumental in transforming defense intelligence into a more capable and cooperative enterprise, providing the critical intelligence required by military commanders and policymakers both at the defense and national levels. commissioned as a second lieutenant through the auburn university rotc program in 1974, lieutenant general burgess began his career with a series of assignments in armor and military intelligence units in germany and at fort stewart, georgia, where he was directly responsible for planning multiple highly successful national training center rotations, numerous command pos
not my opinion, regulatory system is a kenard used by republicans to pursue an agenda supported by the business community year in and year out. nornede, it's a case of political opportumism. that's his opinion. not mine. my concern is if you ask economists on whether or not legislation -- many pieces of legislation that we baffed called jobs bills -- the gentleman has pointed that out -- economists say in the short term which is really what we need to do, we need to do in the short term and the long term is not going to create jobs. . this week we haven't done anything to create jobs. might i ask the gentleman, i didn't see it next week, do we expect the 32nd or 33rd vote on repealing the affordable care act either next week or week after or week after that? as the gentleman knows, c.b.s. opines we spent some 80 hours on that issue with whatever cost is attendant to that, do we -- you can answer both questions, i suppose, but certainly i would be interested and members would be interested to know whether or not we are going to have another vote on repealing the affordable care a

that paterno did not know that sandusky was a child predator. joining us live from philadelphia, cnn contributor and patriots news reporter sara ganim. you've been covering this story from the very beginning. this is a panel that reviewed more than, what, 3.5 million documents, held 430 interviews before coming up with this report. how does this break down in terms of who was most responsible? >> well, judge louie freeh said it comes down to these four people, joe paterno, the president graham spanier and those two penn state officials who have already been charged with lying in the criminal investigation, tim curley and gary schultz. when he was asked about other employees, or more wide cover-up, he denied any other employees are responsible for actively concealing the allegations against jerry sandusky. he did lay some blame on the board of trustees for a lack of oversight. he said they were simply too lax and let a couple of people get away with too much power and not enough responsibility to report. but as far as other people that they lay blame for actively concealing jerry sand

. >> that is awesome. it's caught on camera. i'm ashleigh banfield. it's nice to have you with us every morning. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. let's get started with this. go vote for someone else. how about that for a campaign pitch. fighting words for mitt romney after a pretty rough reception at the naacp convention. it was a tough sell to begin with though anyway. governor romney's really trying to convince african-americans that they'd be better served with him in the white house than with president obama. president obama has about 95ish percent support among african-americans. he misstepped when he referred to the president's health carrey forms as obama care. >> i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- >> yeah, those are the sound of boos. you might say ouch or maybe not. romney is getting beat up by naacp. listen to the president of the washington, d.c., branch describe that chorus of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> an
of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> and there you have it. that was the wrapup, at least from that presidency. shannon travis is live from washington, d.c., this morning. shannon, it really looks like mitt romney's just not backing down at all from this, and there are all sorts of people weighing in on all sorts of different reasons for why he may have gone to the naacp annual conference. wrap it up for me to start with whether this is going to have a residual effect in the negative or in the positive. >> reporter: well, we're still trying to weigh that, ashleigh. when i was watching it, it felt like one of those reality tv shows where the candidate on stage either lives or dyes by boos or applause. he was booed when he mentioned obama care which was a little surprising, because the people at naacp, it's not surprising that he is opposed to obama care. he got booed when he said he was a better president for african-americans than president obama is. last night at a fundraiser in montana governor romney basically pla
a look. good morning. thursday, july 12th. mitt romney, staring at the naacp convention. with us former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner. the executive editor of bloomberg news, al hunt and rounding out our michael bloomberg hour morning, columnist for bloomberg, margaret carlson. in new york, a man whose company i'm sure will be owned by michael bloomberg, executive editor at random house, "time" magazine contributing editor jon meacham and also editorial writer for "the washington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. jonathan. >> yeah. >> let's start with you. >> hey, joe. >> mitt romney, at the naacp convention. that just sort of -- like those old reesy's ads, two great tastes that go great together. not a natural audience for mitt romney and it didn't go especially well. why did he do it? >> i mean, i would hope he did it because what he says, you know, looking for every vote possible and wanted to show respect to the community and ask for their votes. but you don't go there and say that you are going to be better for the african-american
all sides. we're nonpartisan. for us, it's about the agenda. what you plan on doing for our communities. in this case, the problem, and the reason the booing happens in the first place, quite frankly, wasn't because he kritdicized the affordable care act. it's because of his characterization of it using barack obama's name along those lines, seemed very disrespectful. soez those kind of things were very problematic. sure, we disagree with him, and no we don't think they're in the best interest of the naacp or the communities we serve. as a matter of fact, what we did with this particular convention is set our policy, and as the press release said, these policies are in opposition in many cases with the policy positions of the naacp. >> mayor nutter, your city is 44% african-american. 18% of registered african-american voters in philadelphia, they lack a voter id. does mitt romney need to answer for these voter id laws? >> well, if he's running for president of the united states, he should certainly have something to say about it. if he cares about the american right to vote
it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney
. to quote a part of that, from schultz to spanier and curley. the only downside for us is if the message isn't heard, and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it. he is referring to an earlier email written around 8:00 the night before by tim curley in which curley says after giving it much thought -- excuse me, after giving it more thought and talking it over with joe yesterday, i am uncomfortable with what we agreed were the next steps. freeh in his statement went on to say that he had interviewed more than 430 people, and his investigative group had sifted through and found more than 3.5 million emails and documents. a very, very comprehensive investigation. and devastating in many ways to penn state. >> devastating to penn state. it also poiaints a very interesting picture of joe paterno. any reaction to what they are saying about joe paterno? >> not yet, erica. but clearly, this meeting between paterno and tim curley was very, very significant. i'm sure some of the first questions being asked of louie freeh will be about the context of that email. are they f
on it. that's "hardball" for now. thank you for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >> good evening americans. wemcome to "the ed show" from new york. the blue birds were out for mitt romney during a speech to the naacp. tonight, i'll show you why he got off easy. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> this was perhaps one of the most negative reactions mitt romney has had in the course of his 2012 presidential campaign. >> mitt romney gets booed mercilously for his vision for america. >> i think we expected that, of course. >> tonight, hillary shenten of the naacp, and philadelphia mayor michael nutter on what happens when mitt romney tells the truth. >>> repeal and disgrace. house republicans vote to take health care away from americans. house democratic whip steny hoyer is here with reaction. >> and today, the congressional budget office debunks one of the greatest republican lies ever told. >> unless the president gets off of his absolute obsession with raising taxes -- >> underbarack obama, he has one plan and one plan only. that's to raise ever
, if i have a pre-existing condition, i'll just live with that. i won't use any 4e8th care funds or do anything about that. >> a lot out there, who wants to go first. >> i can address some of them. if you don't think the health care system is broken, that's certainly a fair opinion to have. i don't think a lot of americans would share that opinion. by broken i don't mine nonfunctioning at all. there's a lot of changes we could make to make it work better. i think a lot of americans think it should be a lot better than it currently is. it does start at $95, but it escalates rapidly within two years it will be $695 or 2 and a half percent your income up to a cap. we can start talking about real money there. that's separate from the new tax on investment income and cadillac plans, all together about $800 billion of taxes. it's not chump change. >> the u.s. health care system is phenomenal in certain regards. it can do enormously beneficial things for people. i'm going to stick with broken for reasons joe says. if you look at particular pieces, it costs too much, but you can look at other
the taxes like crazy. we need freedom. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. mitt romney spoke to the naacp convention in houston, texas today. he delivered a speech short on specifics and long on tepid generalities. >> some may wonder why a republican would campaign in the african-american community and address the naacp. i hope to address every american of every race, creed, and sexual orientation. from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between. >> romney was greeted with polite applause throughout the speech, and even got some encouraging organ music. >> i can't promise you that i'll agree on every issue, but i do promise that your hospitality to me today will be returned. we will know one another. and we will work to common purpose. >> the audience gave romney their attention and a fair hearing. at the end of the speech, the crowd respectfully offered a standing ovation to the candidate. the attendees gave him some credit for showing up. unlike the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was on
spike, slowing investment in u.s. companies and jeopardizing development in energy projects that create american jobs. ask congress to stop a dividend tax hike -- for all of us. >>shepard: there is word now that iran could be about three years fromming have missile capable of hitting the united states. one of the findings in a new pentagon report. congress got the report last month but bloomberg news got a copy of it. and according to those documents iran's military is making progress improving the accuracy and the "killing power," of the missile arsenal. it says that iran "has methodally cultivate add network of sponsored terrorists surrogates capable of targeting u.s. and israeli interests." it says that iran could be capable of testing long-range intercontinental missile by 2015. and jonathan hunt is here following this. a lost worrying claims in this report to hear from those who have been through it. >>jonathan: it says iran is using all the tools in their box to increase their influence and power in the region from the most benign diplomatic outreach to other countries in that reg

that we could knock out of the way that would enable better use of technology to deliver care to these. obviously you got to have a surgeon there at some point if you have got to have that kind of intervention. it seems like there are a you've got to have a surge in their and their things that could be done on the preventive side. >> i would have to do more homework on that and get back to you. i don't have a sense of what kind of penetration there is true there is more than just a case report of that being out there. it is emerging. i don't know that we've got clear data to answer your question. >> i will not speak to the surgical issue but in internal medicine and critical care and pulmonary medicine and infectious disease, a great deal about reaches now being done in the rural parts of kentucky the a telemedicine programs. the technology needs to be improved. the standardization is to be improved, but it does work. in one of our communities recently, every day member of the critical care icu team met on video with a team in a small community hospital taking care critical patients a
espys swoop in to save us from the slowest day in sports. the question is, would tim tebow steal the show, even in the off season? it's "way too early" for this. >>> good morning, i'm jonathan capehart in for willie geist, and this is "way too early," the show that was twice nominated for best musical score for a newscast. glad you're up with us watching on msnbc or slisenning live on sirius xm radio. you can do what rob wrigle does as text the word awake followed by your response to 622639. we'll read the best responses later in the show. the next 30 minutes will be your cram session for this thursday, july 12th, there's a lot going on today, including new signs that the federal reserve is seriously considering another round of stimulus to help boost the economy. >>> coming up, a live report from cnbc to break down what it all means. >>> plus, fun with charts on the house floor. one congressman continues a long-standing tradition of using ridiculous analogies during house debates. we'll have that clip later in the show. >>> but first, let's get to the news, live at 5:30 a.m. her
, explain to us what else this new report reveals. >> well, shepard, the report found that school administrators actually left a paper and email trail proving they knew more than they were willing to admit. on may 5th of 1998 after a boy's mother reported a possible sexual assault by jerry sandusky, the university senior vice president for business and finances own handwritten notes raise the question, quote: is this opening a pandora's box? other children? there is more. email from the school's athletic director revealed he changed his mind about reporting alleged abuse after talking with joe paterno. the report says failure to act put other children in danger. shep? >> shepard: david lee, joe paterno's family has issued a statement saying basically they don't buy any of this report. >> that's right. the panel issued a statement soon after the 276-page report was made public saying that although they are still reviewing its findings, they do reject some of its conclusions. the statement says, in part, and i quote: the idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover
and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> that was one sample of what we heard. i also talked to another woman who said that she absolutely booed but she said she was not booing mitt romney, she was booing his agenda. vice president joe biden will be coming in here later on this morning. the president is not coming to the naacp. the white house says he has a scheduling conflict and that's why joe biden is here, but, soledad, i have to tell you if romney's aim yesterday was exciting the conservative base with that speech he gave to the naacp, he may have also excited the liberal base of the democratic party or at least african-american voters because i think this crowd will give joe biden a warm response when he gets into this hall later on this morning. as for mitt romney, later on today talking about speaking to your base, he is going to be holding a fundraiser in wyoming with none other than dick cheney. soledad. >> jim acosta for us. thank you. i should mention in a few minutes we'll be speaking with florida's lieutenant gov, jennifer carol, the first african-america
the single most important thing we want to achieve is obama to be a one term president. not, not to get us out of this recession. not to promote jobs. not to do the things that needed to to be done. but make barack obama a one term president. >> let's go ahead and bring in our "news nation" politicalle panel. richard fowler with alice stewart and ann henderson, political reporter for "the washington post." good afternoon to all of you. richard, i want to start with you. did the vice president deliver today in houston? >> the vice president delivered, craig. i got to tell you, the truth of the matter is the vice president went there and told the naacp the truth. we know that mitch mcconnell and republicans want to make president obama a one term president. they are willing to do everything possible to make that happen. they are willing to stall bills, stall job creating measures, do everything to make the president fail and the vice president pointed that out today. >> there was speculation around these parts the white house deliberately decided not send the president but to send joe biden
romney has used the 1999 departure date to shield himself from claims that he was at the helm when that company allegedly drove companies into bankruptcy, laid off workers, outsourced jobs as well. we should note that one of the fact checkers that he mentioned put out a statement today saying a lot of these claims, citing with the romney camp. even if he wasn't at bain at the time of the outsource how much does all of this continue talk hurt his campaign? >> well, it certainly hurts the campaign and i will say one of those fact checkers is our checker here. you can see the romney campaign is lachg on to what these fact checkers have said and calling out the obama campaign for telling falsehoods. so far that doesn't seem to necessarily be working and certainly not enough in terms of what republicans want to see mitt romney put up, which is evidence of that he created jobs at bain and to really flush out what his record there was. but we can tell, i think, from this reaction that the romney campaign is take on some water around bain and you've seen this narrative particularly out of

to see what the u.s. attorney says and that will not affect his decision. i think he is resolute and i think he is firm about this. >> mayor convinceent gray addressed the corruption allegations for the first time yesterday. he says he plans to finish out his term as mayor. >>> the fauquier county sheriff's office have self leads in the death of a local news reporter, sarah greenhalgh. riskers are also talking to a number of men who greenhalgh dated and one who she referenced as crazy. >> reporter: a mood disorder. that is what illinois congressman jesse jackson, jr. is reportedly being treated for. the news comes more than a month after the chicago representative quietly went on a medical leave of absence. it was initially reported the 47-year-old was being treated for exhaustion. last week, his staffers said jackson's condition was worse than previously thought and he had been privately battling emotional problems. a number of his colleagues are speaking out. some are wishing him a speedy recovery. >> our prayers are with his family. i hope that we will hear soon that he is on the wa
to discuss with you today. somebody had told us in the 1950's or 1960's that a black citizen would serve as the 44th president of the united states, we would have been proud and many would have been surprised. we might have assumed the presidency would be the last door of opportunity to be opened. before that came to pass every other barrier in the path to equal opportunity wycherley have to have come now. it has not happen quite that way. many barriers remain. in some ways the challenges are more complicated than before. across america and within your own ranks, there is serious debate about the way forward. if equal opportunity were it and accomplished fact, then a bad economy would be equal for everyone. instead is worse for african- americans and almost every way. in june while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2%, the unemployment rate for african-americans actually went up from 13% to 14.4%. americans of every backgrounder asking when the economy will finally recover. you in particular are entitled to an answer. if equal opportunity -- [applause] if equal opportunit
to the people in the room. but then when he used the phrase repeal obama care, not repeal the aca or, you know, repeal the health care bill, but repeal obama care -- >> very deliberate. >> -- it became clear he was sending a signal somewhere else. that's disappointing. he missed a real opportunity to build a bridge here. hay could have taken the 5% of his speech which is all that it was and replaced it with a bridge. he could, for instance, have talked about how newt gingrich, grover norquist with the naacp this time last year and announced their support for our smart on crime push to reform criminal justice systems across the country, it has been embraced one way or the other by republican governors from rick perry to mr. diehl down in georgia, various aspects of it. how there is common ground. he didn't do that. >> if he hadn't referenced health care and i get the semantic issue you raised and i think it's legitimate, wouldn't we be sitting here right now saying ah-ha. didn't go anywhere near the affordable health care act. >> folks know you have 20 minutes and you are only going talk about
